Police: Homicide victim found after suspect tells of killing

May 2, 2020 GMT

PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say they located a homicide victim after being told of a killing by a man arrested after a female driver was wounded when stabbed through her car’s open window.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said 43-year-old Alan Demond Clark was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder in the killing of Christopher Anthony Molinar and on suspicion of aggravated assault in the stabbing of the 38-year-old driver.

Thompson said the woman didn’t know the man who reached in and stabbed her Friday night as she waited for a train to cross a street in downtown Phoenix. She suffered a superficial injury and her identity wasn’t released.


According to Thompson, officers quickly located and arrested Clark in the area of the stabbing and he blurted out that he’d stabbed somebody in a motel room several miles away.

Thompson says police found Molinar dead at that location and that any relationship betwen Clark and Molinar wasn’t known.

Clark remained jailed Saturday and online court records didn’t list an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
